Comixology added four new comics to their list for the week! Not only are there four comics but they are all What if…? comics!
What If? Civil War (2007) # 1
What If? Wolverine : Enemy of the State # 1
What If? Spider-Man : The Other # 1
What If? Planet Hulk (2007) # 1
A total savings of $7.96!
I’ve actually read all four of these and they were all pretty good.
Gosh, I thought I wrote a review for What If? Wolverine : Enemy of the State but it doesn’t look like I did. I’m really am the worst! Such a great comic and I reference it a bunch when I think about how much of a villain Kitty could be if she went bad.
I imagine since they wrote (2007) that means there has been additional Civil War and Planet Hulk What If titles which makes sense as those two are ripe for additional stories to be told.

Just to try to make this a bigger post, I’ll give a few updates on my gaming progress. I’m still at rank 15. I played some Dead by Daylight last night, once as David Cage and I did not accomplish either daily goal. One was to be chased for 120 seconds and I got up to 90 seconds and the other is to open one exit, which I wish I was better at. It took two minutes to match me up and then I was dead within two minutes as Ghostface just found me, I got unhooked and healed and then he found me almost immediately and hooked me again. I really wish I had such luck or skill when I’m the killer. I played as the Nurse so I could teleport and hit a survivor four times and only managed to hit one of them. So I was playing pretty well last week and I picked up the game for the first time in a week and I was complete trash again. But instead of using it as a chill game, I have decided, with this and Rocket League, that I’ll just commit a gaming night to each game instead of trying to do another game and end the night with one of my chill games. That wasn’t doing justice to any of the games, plus it takes so long to match me that I’ve started losing interest or patience with it. Which is crazy as I really do adore Dead by Daylight but I spend so much time waiting and then I get killed so fast, it just stinks all over. I’ll keep playing but not as addictively as I have in the past.
. . .
I’ll be playing Rocket League tonight and I’m hoping to knock out a slew of trophies or at least, make decent progress on them. I think I’m ready to pay online some more, especially in some four on four matches, so that way, there is a higher chance of me not holding the entire team back. I’m looking way forward to it. I have a list of trophies I want to tackle and everything.
. . .
I was playing Beyond : Two Souls before Dead by Daylight and finished up the Old Friends, which turned into the Nora chapter, and then I started Dead by Daylight. I was thinking Old Friends was taking way longer so I did rush through it and that’s when I realized I need to really just mentally commit to one game. I missed two trophy opportunities but not really as we have the option to let a character die or live and if we were killing or saving all characters, this character would be considered the final character to let live or die. Which I’m pretty sure I’m 50/50 on that progress so I was already going to miss out on that trophy. I did choose to let the person die and it wasn’t much of a life they were living.
The next chapter is the Briefing, and it does feel like we’re leading up to the big finale. At this point, I do want to just get to Detroit : Become Human but I’m not trying to rush it but it might be time to put this game down. The Mission chapter was pretty great and worth playing just for that alone, plus the excellent character work, but I’m definitely not going back to the homeless chapter and playing forward like I originally thought of doing. I’ll save that for a second playthrough.

I completed my fifth playthrough of Late Shift and I even experimented with making a video!
So . . . thanks me for hosting my own video on YouTube!
It looks like I can only post 50 minutes of video so if I want to put my first playthrough of Man of Medan up, I might have to purposely only do it in 45 minute chucks.
So that was a nice experiment to test out ShareFactory.
Anyway, so I wanted to make a video of my all time favorite story beat in Late Shift! I included the part where they call Sebastian’s friend to find his location to set up the hospital scene properly. Then there is the moment with the old man with the magazine that is cute.
But right around the 8:20 minute mark, Mark touches May-Ling’s hand and the moment with the heart monitor is such perfect writing! Joe Sowerbutts and Haruka Abe have such great chemistry and I can’t wait for these final two playthroughs to see what happens with them in the best endings! Hopefully the fifth one was the end of the bad ones.
I thought I was being a tad racist that the girl from Clean Bandit’s Rather Be looked a lot like Haruka Abe but it turns out they are one and the same! I loved that video before but now it got even better!
I wonder if this is why I’ve been thinking about Clean Bandit so much lately. The other night, I had the hardest time remembering the name of the band and had to look up Kiesza’s Hideaway as I recall the two songs being out at the same time. I’ve been in a 90s music mood as well as a 2014 music mood lately.
Apparently she was Po in that horrible Emerald City show but I don’t recall that and the Wikipedia page for the show doesn’t even list Po so she was probably a minor character. Shame she nor Sowerbutts has gotten more work. He was in a movie, I Capture the Castle that I should check out one of these days.
. . .
I’m getting closer to completing the main story for Lego Marvel Superheroes 2. I believe I just have three more chapters and then I would have all of the hubs unlocked and I can start tackling the DLC and replaying levels for all of the minikits and to save Stan Lee. There are challenges scattered across the world that I will also have to complete as well.
I’ve been waiting to get to Knowhere so I can get the trophy for having Lockjaw and Cosmo in the same team.
. . .
VUDU finally got Avengers Endgame and I immediately went to the third act battle sequence which literally starts a bit after the two hour mark with a full hour of the movie left and it was as glorious, if not better, than I remembered! We still need to buy Captain Marvel but I’m going to be spending a bunch of time with this film and its special features which include character spotlights and a commentary track that I’m going to listen the heck out of!
